What types of conditions are treated with PRP?

There are many different conditions that PRP can treat. This type of therapy is often used for the feet, hip, arm, knee, shoulder and lower legs. If you are interested in PRP therapy, please speak with Dr. Petrychenko today. Some of the most commonly treated condition include arthritis, diabetes, tendonitis, osteoarthritis, and more.

Will PRP hurt?

The injection itself is not reported to be painful and should not hurt. However, patients have expressed that after the injection, the area may be sore for about 48 hours. This is considered normal.

Am I a good candidate for PRP therapy?

Dr. Petrychenko will determine that when you come into our office for a consultation. Most good candidates are in good health. Patients who have active cancer, severe anemia, or low platelet counts are not considered to be good candidates.

How long will stem cell injections take to work?

There is no way to pinpoint when you will receive results. Some patients experience relief from their pain right away and others need a bit more time. Each patient is unique, but you can expect to experience improvement in your condition in about six months.

Can I receive stem cell treatment if I have a bone on bone condition?

No. There needs to be some cartilage present for the stem cells to regenerate cartilage. If you do not have any cartilage left, we do not recommend that you receive the procedure.

When can I return to my normal activities after a stem cell injection?

It depends. If you are treating a joint that will not be used often in your daily activities, you may be able to return right away. However, if you receive a stem cell injection in your knee, it would not be recommended that you head out to play golf immediately after. As a general rule, you should allow yourself about three months before you return to any strenuous exercises or activities.
